With Earth Day on the horizon, you might be thinking more about how you can do your part to live a more eco-friendly lifestyle. Earth Day is a day to remember and honor our beautiful planet. It doesn’t have to be difficult! Even the littlest things can make a difference in our environment.
- Take a walk — Instead of driving your car, take a walk and get some fresh air.
- Waste Less — Freeze your leftovers, hit the lights before you leave, & grab your reusable shopping bags.
- Recycle, Recycle — Recycle your plastic, paper, glass, metal, and so much more. Be sure to check your local county websites for an up-to-date and accurate list.
- Shop Smarter — Do your research before you shop to learn about how things are made and what they’re made with.
- Grow Your Favorite Plants — Give back to the planet that gives us so much by planting your favorite trees, flowers and more around your home!
- Tell a Friend — Caring for the world is a team effort. Get involved with your community by volunteering and sharing what you’ve learned about sustainability.
Tanger Outlets supports the communities we serve and encourages all team members, each year, to get involved and donate their time and service to make a difference. Our founder, Stanley K. Tanger (1923-2010), was a well-known philanthropist who recognized the importance of the company being socially responsible. Tanger team members are encouraged to team up and make a difference!
Tanger Volunteerism is an ongoing, year-round initiative that encourages team members to give back to the community often, rather than only during the month of April. However, in celebration of Earth Month and Earth Day on April 22, we focus April’s volunteer efforts on green initiatives. Volunteer events include planting, landscaping, beach clean-ups, erosion projects, educating and investing in our communities, sustainable building projects and so much more.
